Living with a Neck Injury
We understand how even the slightest neck injury can prevent you from carrying out simple day to day tasks. All of a sudden, looking after yourself, driving and working can become an impossible challenge.
In some very serious cases, the effects of a neck injury may be catastrophic and require you to change the way you live considerably, so financial compensation can help make this transition easier.
If you or a loved one has sustained a neck injury in an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation against the person that caused your accident. For example, if you have been seriously injured in a car accident as either the driver or a passenger, then you can make a claim against the insurance of the 3rd party driver at fault for the accident. Or if you have sustained a serious neck injury at work then you may be able to claim against your employers, employer’s liability insurance policy.
If you are unsure if you can claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today and our expert solicitors will be happy to give you the advice you need to start your neck injury claim.
We aim to make the process of claiming as stress free as possible and are ready to work as hard as we can to achieve justice and win you compensation.

How long after my accident can I make a claim?
The law in England & Wales states that you have 3 years from the date of your accident in which you are able to make a claim for personal injury.
This 3 year claim period, or “limitation period” as it is commonly referred to, is different for minors and those who may lack the capacity to make their own decisions.
To ensure that your potential claim does not fall outside this strict 3 year claim period, we recommend you contact us as soon as possible to start your claim.
